The results of The Game Awards 2017 are in, and Nintendo has taken home a total of six awards.  One of those awards is technically not Nintendo, but it was the result of a collaboration between Nintendo and Ubisoft, so I am including it on this list.  The Nintendo games which received awards are as follows:

  • Game of the Year – Legend of Zelda:Breath of the Wild
  • Best Game Direction – Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Best Handheld Game – Metroid: Samus Returns
  • Bests Action/Adventure Game – Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Best Family Game – Mario Odyssey
  • Best Strategy Game – Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Nintendo had a strong showing at The Game Awards 2017.  This has been a massive year for Breath of the Wild, and the game truly deserves the accolades it has received.  Here is to another strong year from Nintendo.
